Colloid mill is used both as pump and for homogenisation when production plant protection production.
In Springtime, there is a lot to do out in the open: tilling the soil, clear the ground and protect plants and trees from insects and such. This last problem is what we would like to address here, specifically, protection of trees from insects.
Not so long ago, a client in Azerbaijan asked for a colloid mill for production of homogeneous solutions. The client needed to prepare emulsion to cover the lower part of the tree to protect it from insects. As we talked, the client shared their method and recipe: by homogenising liquid paraffin, transformer oil, sodium sulfate (a reagent to convert oxides which are difficult to solve into soluble sulfates), a surfactant and water, it is possible to produce an outstanding emulsified cover for trees, protecting the lower trunk. They call it “spacesuit”.”.
One of the most optimal solutions is the use of a colloid mill.
What is a colloid mill?
The CLM colloid mill is emulsion machine specifically designed for production of highly stable colloidal solutions, superfine suspensions, blends and emulsions. The mill features wet grinding due to the gap between rotor and stator cones being larger at the inlet and smaller at the outlet.
GlobeCore high performance colloid mills can operate either as stand alone applications or be retrofitted into existing production lines. The operating pressure of the colloid mill varies between 1.5 and 2.5 bar, depending on physical and chemical properties of the product.
The GlobeCore homogeniser mixing machine have several advantages, which are key to making a decision to purchase this system:
- modern design and world class quality,
- competitive price,
- qualified engineer advice,
- short lead time,
- stability of the mix,
- heating/cooling jacket,
- presence of high tech production equipment, professional staff (over 200 employees) allow to build the ordered product in the shortest possible time,
- ability to adjust the gap in the mill without the need to dismount the mill from the production line,
- grinding fineness up to 1 micron,
- components from the world’s leading manufacturers,
- operational temperature range from -30 С° to 220 С°,
- optional soundproofing.
Additionally, the complex geometry of the rotor surface create increased turbulence, which shears particles.
The product in the colloid mill is ground between the rotating and stationary calibrated cylindrical radially skewed teeth of the rotor and stator.
The centrifugal force and high velocity of the rotor relative to the fixed stator cause liquid and semi-liquid materials to become homogenic and finely dispersed.
The colloid mill simultaneously disperses and homogenizes materials.
A heat jacket allows to apply or dissipate heat to or from the grinding zone.
The colloid mill features high performance capacity, allows to produce highly stable emulsions, as well as colloidal suspensions, ensures high degree of homogenization and particle size to 1 micron.
Processes are intensified by 100 – 600%.
Besides, the device creates cavitation, i.e. explosion of caverns by internal pressure.
The colloid mill can be retrofitted into existing production lines.
For high quality grinding the product must enter the mill in certain proportions at constant rate.
The degree of granulation and pumping qualities may vary depending on the mechanical properties of the material and the carrier phase.
